Affordable Travel Insurance Philippines: Schengen and Non-Schengen Travel Insurance

Insurance

Many Filipinos who travel abroad today don’t purchase travel insurance before they depart. Travelers only buy travel insurance when it is required. Required or not, travel insurance is very important when traveling abroad. When you get sick or suffered injuries abroad, your travel insurance can cover your medical expenses. Your local travel insurance provider will coordinate with accredited hospitals where you will be confined. Take note that medical expenses abroad are very expensive and you may not afford it. Hospitals may even be hesitant to provide expensive medical treatment for you because of the fear that you may not pay. Bringing a travel insurance policy may convince hospitals abroad to provide the medical treatments you need. Travel insurance also cover legitimate baggage loss and delay, missed departures, death, disablement and repatriation of mortal remains upon death.

BPI/MS Insurance Corporation is one of the leading and most trusted provider of the best and affordable travel care insurance in the Philippines. It has very affordable packages with the following benefits:

Death or Disablement: BPI/MS pays benefit specified in the policy schedule for accidental death & disablement within 90 days from the date of the accident.

Medical and Additional Expense: Travel Care covers for medical, surgical or hospital charges and emergency dental treatment charges incurred as a result of accidental bodily injury, illness or death during your journey as specified in your policy schedule.

Loss of Baggage including Delays: Pays for actual or replacement cost of baggage due to accidental loss, theft or damage during the trip. This will also take care of your worries in case your checked-in baggage has been delayed, misdirected or misplaced in delivery for more than 8 hours from the time you arrive at your destination.

Trip Cancellation / Curtailment: Reimburses non-refundable expenses such as airline tickets, irrevocable deposits and advance payment for accommodations if your trip is cancelled or curtailed due to unforeseen incidents.

Missed travel Connections: Pays benefit up to a maximum of PHP 10,000 for reasonable additional travel and accommodation costs incurred in the arrangement of alternative travel.
